Stacks of pieces of furniture.

What I love about working here is that I can contribute as an individual and as a team. You put a lot of your abilities into a project, but others are contributing their skills, too. It’s really cool to see it all come together.

Another thing I’m proud of is that Tom and Mary built a values-based company that also creates fine furniture. The company’s way of doing business always came first. I think that’s why we continue to be successful.

“Not everybody in the company started as a woodworker. We have such a great mix of backgrounds —an attorney, a bartender, a shoe manufacturer, a mom that wanted to get back into the workforce — those perspectives make it interesting.”
